Did you know that Ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt were both places where civilization began? The people living there created early systems of money, writing systems leadership and governing roles, and even social classes! Each week we will dive into learning about how Mesopotamians and Egyptians lived, learned and built successful empires. This course is open to learners ages 10-13. If you are a homeschooler and need grades recorded for this course, please contact me privately to make those...
This class is taught in English.
While learning about Mesopotamian and Egyptian culture and traditions students will come to understand why the first civilizations were located along rivers, as well as the factors that contributed to a stable and lasting civilization.

There will be a variety of homework assignments given throughout this class. Students will be asked to read the suggested readings in order to help introduce and reinforce what students will learn during class times (these readings are outlined in the course description). Students will also be asked to complete some review sheets for homework (also outlined in the course description). Homework should not take more than 1-2 hours per week.
All materials will be provided to learners in our class's Google Classroom. The join code for the Google Classroom will be posted in the Outschool classroom before our live classes start.
Students progress will be assessed informally through class discussion and formally through classwork assignments, homework assignments, as well as a test at the end of the course. Point values will be assigned to classwork assignments, homework assignments, and the test at the end of the course. All grades will be posted in the Google Classroom for the course.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Please note that Google Classroom will only be accessed during this live class and at no other time (eg., for a flex class.).
We will be using curriculum readings provided by USHistory.org, CommonLit.org, as well as Teachers' Curriculum Institute, activities, and assignments that will be posted in the Google Classroom for this course.
